Client Comments

"Jeff Battershall is a lawyer's lawyer. His qualifications are impeccable, but what distinguishes him in my experience are his strategic orientation to matter management, intense loyalty to my organization, attention to detail, and unquestioned integrity. As a General Counsel, I am comforted each day to know that Jeff has my back. He is also tremendously respected by my CEO, our boards, and my colleagues. Jeff's great practice strengths are corporate and commercial, but he has a great feel for the other areas in which my organization requires services and he is superb at coordinating the delivery of service. He has a particularly broad and deep understanding of the healthcare industry. In short, I consider Jeff to be a superb counselor and count myself and my organization fortunate to have him on our side."

"Jeff is truly fantastic to work with. He is creative, responsive, and reliable. It's clear he always has the client's best interests at the forefront."
